Meeting Room Name: Ballroom Section B
Theater Style: 200

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

Fostering creativity is no longer just enrichment to learning- It is where critical connections, innovation, and meaningful inspiration come together. With information just a click away, 21st Century learners must be able to think critically and creatively. Making connections and synthesizing information will be key to academic and overall future success.

We know that children experience access to the creative-self in their early years more so than at any other time in their lives. Helping children to recognize and become acquainted with the many facets of creative expression can be an amazing experience for the early childhood educator as well. In this workshop participants will have a chance to learn and explore creative expression activities for young children, as well as be exposed to multiple ideas to enhance environments that support a play-based emergent curriculum. Participants will be provided information through lecture, power-point photo/video slide show, as well as hands on activities to explore the topic of creativity - specifically utilizing open-ended and engaging activities which may have multiple outcomes to foster creativity and creative thinking.

Participants will leave with new ideas and make connections for supporting creativity in their practice.

Apr 21, 2018 @ 01:00 PM

Room Location: Conference Center Plaza Level
Meeting Room Name: 214
Theater Style: 80

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

In this interactive program, parents, teachers and administrators will learn the impact of the words they use and how what they thought was being respectful and creating happy children is actually causing anxiety and self-limitation. Helicopter parenting or "curling parents" as I now call them, are raising a generation of children with no self-confidence because they have not had opportunities to fail or figure things out on their own.

Fearful parents make it harder to educate children due to the over-protection and sense of entitlement we are seeing more and more.

This presentation will show how parents and teachers can change their communication methods to better equip kids and to make their own lives easier in the process. We will also address the school's communication with parents.

Through PowerPoint, humor, and audience participation along with a handout, participants will leave with a guide to creating self-reliant kids with good coping skills.

Apr 20, 2018 @ 08:00 AM

Room Location: Conference Center Lower Level
Meeting Room Name: 101
Theater Style: 130

Learning Level: Advanced

Language: English

Course Description

Using the Prevent - Teach - Reinforce for Young Children (PTR-YC) model (Dunlap, Wilson, Strain, & Lee, 2013), participants will learn the steps to systematically support children with ongoing challenging behaviors. The researched based methods of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and positive behavior support (PBS) are used to outline a step by step process uniquely designed for the young child in childcare/preschool settings. This Tier III intervention requires a team based approach which follows the following five (5) steps: Teaming and Goal Setting, Data Collection, PTR-YC Assessment (Functional Behavioral Assessment), PTRY-YC Intervention, and Using Data and Next Steps. Participants should be familiar with the classroom practices of the Pyramid Model (Fox, Dunlap, Hemmeter, Joseph, & Strain, 2003) and have a general understanding of implementing a multi-tiered system of support. Teachers, directors/administrators, and mental health consultants will understand the guiding beliefs, principals and factors that promote the effectiveness of PTR-YC.
